Spring Party Weekend

19 Apr

It’s that time of the year when professors leave upstate New York in fear of the wrath of Spring Party Weekend. Three (or four, or five) days of insane college students getting drunk on lawns, attending concerts, and not remembering any of it. If you want, you can jump in a pool of Jello, or maybe some beach volleyball is more your cup of tea. Barbecues are lit up, even if it rains, and campus tours for potential applicants are cancelled.

This year, Avicii is the main stage performer (I don’t want to think about how much of my tuition is going towards this concert).  Following this is a foam party with Kap Slap. 80s cover bands, and Springsteen cover bands, add to the collection of events.

As we’ve mentioned before on Unfound, Kap Slap is originally from our high school and damn, he makes some good music. Here is his recent mix of Swedish House Mafia with “Call Me Maybe.”

Things are about to get nuts at Colgate. As Walter Cronkite said in 1972: “There are two places in the world I wouldn’t want my daughter to be … Vietnam and Colgate during Spring Party Weekend.”

Kap Slap 1/12/11 @ The Middle East

13 Jan

The ceiling was dripping wet with condensation and the floor was riddled with kids barely out of high school. You can’t expect anything else when you’re going to “Throwed” events, however, it’s very appropriate considering that Kap Slap probably started out playing for frat parties. Really fun show, Jared had a awesome stage presence and got everyone pumped. But after last night and seeing Super Mash Bros last year, I’ve realized that mashup artists just don’t do it as well as DJs while performing live. He stuck mostly to his popular mashes and just linked them with a cross fader and occasionally played with the EQ. Nothing unexpected, but nothing other than great time. It seem’s like he’s on his way to becoming the top mashup artist out there, and he’s also a really nice guy, so check him out and download Kap Slap.

Kap Slap

17 Dec

I got into a conversation about mashups with a friend who informed me the artist Kap Slap was from my high school-Whoa, what!? That came as a total surprise. Jared’s motto is Mashups for Raging, and that’s exactly what it is, a complete party vibe. Check out his hectic medley’s and get buck.

I first heard of Kap Slap through his collab with 3LAU in “Turbulent Rock Anthem” and then his “Strobe Lights Say My Name” This is Guetta’s Calling Solveig Up”-Download. Check out his site for his all his songs and downloads-kapslap.com

The Pregame Handbook

15 Nov

It’s not a pregame unless there’s music. Playing the proper music at your pregame isn’t about having one good playlist, it’s about to catering to the crowd and the occasion you’re drinking for. Here’s a mini-playlist for your different types of friends and helping them get from a to b (where b may be drunkland or cloud9). Hopefully these songs keep your friends’ paws off your iPod/laptop.

There’s a lot of mash-ups and I’ve tried not to include any songs I’ve already posted. (Downloads are in batches when size limit allowed). Enjoy.

Combining Indian music (think A.R. Rahman) with American music comes the fabulous album,  Rahman Noodles, by NYC’s RajStar.

Chicken Tikka meets Grits. Curry meets Steak. You get the idea. Rahman Noodles takes samples of AR Rahman’s work (i.e. Slumdog Millionaire, Bombay, etc.) and samples of various western musicians (i.e. Jay-Z, Michael Jackson), all taken completely apart and put back together, mixed with the finest of spices and elements of RajStar’s own production to bring you a completely unique sound…Rahman Noodles.”

Check out and download “Welcome Da” and “Flashing Rang” below.
